We're Part of the Love Heals Movement

We’re a sister program of Thistle Farms in Nashville, Tennessee where this model was founded by Becca Stevens over 20 years ago. Their motto is “love heals,” and the hundreds of women that have graduated from their program these past decades are a testament to that truth. We also are grateful to the many organizations in this area with whom we partner and collaborate to ensure our community works together to best serve the needs of survivors of sex trafficking/prostitution.
